We like cars, the cars that go boom

Grab It! - L'Trimm My parents bought me an external Firewire CD burner for a birthday present (back in June) but the thing didn’t work. When I met them for dinner last night, they gave me a new one which although is a wimpy USB 1.1 model, at least it’s a name brand (Iomega Zip CD650). Turns out that it actually works. I guess there’s something to be said for buying name brands.

So this morning I finally made the “Car Songs” CD that I’ve been thinking about since this summer! Here’s what’s on the CD:

  • Barenaked Ladies – In the Car
  • Beach Boys – Fun, Fun, Fun
  • Beatles – Drive My Car
  • Billy Ocean – Get Out of My Dreams Get into My Car
  • Don McLean – American Pie
  • Geggy Tah – Whoever You Are
  • L’Trimm – Cars that go boom
  • Prince – Little Red Corvette
  • Roger Miller – King of the Road
  • Rose Royce – Car Wash
  • Sammy Hagar – I Can’t Drive 55
  • Tracy Chapman – Fast Car
  • Trio – Da Da Da
  • Willie Nelson – On The Road Again

Yes, I know that “Da Da Da” isn’t actually a song about cars or driving, but those Volkswagen commercials have infused the song with a whole new set of car imagery. Kinda like I always think of United Airlines when I hear Rhapsody in Blue.
